12 Rules of Monk Mode #6: It’s Not About Doing

This is the sixth of a 12-part series remixing Jordan Peterson’s book 12 Rules For Lifeone chapter a week to coincide with the 12 weeks remaining for my one year celibacy vow.


“My position was terrible. I knew that I could find nothing in the way of rational knowledge except a denial of life; and in faith I could find nothing except a denial of reason, and this was even more impossible than a denial of life. According to rational knowledge, it followed that life is evil, and people know it. They do not have to live, yet they have lived and they do live, just as I myself had lived, even though I had known for a long time that life is meaningless and evil.” – Leo Tolstoy

To some philosophers, the presence of any suffering seems to negate any possibility that life can be considered Good. This matter is exacerbated when we conceptualize reality as a product of a persona-having God, as we can reason that they too must not be all Good (or perhaps more leniently, all powerful), since they have created such an imperfect mess that is our world.

But life can not truly be both meaningless and evil. To declare it evil is to give it meaning that it should be good. However, we can satisfy the claim if we observe life as meaningless in the objective sense, and evil in the subjective. Therefore, if Good exists at all in this world, it could be more accurately observed as a reduction on the total spectrum of evil. For instance, self-defense could be viewed as evil, as it also harms the instigating party.

In this way, all life forms cause suffering to others in order to survive, whether through direct consumption or self-defense/sustenance. You wouldn’t hurt a fly, but a fly’s nature is harmful to you, as they carry disease and filth with them (they prefer to breed in poop), and even regurgitate their food along the way. The seemingly non-sentient plants the vegans exclude from their self-righteous preservation of life also can produce anti-nutrients that can kill feeding insects (and severely damage the digestion process of humans) in order to protect themselves and sustain their own life as well.

But returning to our original point, the end of your rational knowledge should not point you to a denial of life. Your death is already an inevitable event as soon as you become alive, so how is it rational to deny life even further?

“How can a person who is awake avoid outrage at the world?…After the experience of terrible atrocity, isn’t forgiveness just cowardice, or lack of willpower?”

pp. 151-152

If you recall the scene in Avengers: Infinity War when Thanos and Stark meet, Thanos tells Stark that he is “not the only one cursed with knowledge.” Knowledge is a curse in the same way that ignorance is bliss, because while knowledge is power, power can also equate to responsibility.

Extremely intelligent individuals like Tolstoy beared the responsibility of ridding the world of evil, but as it is stated in The Dark Knight, “you either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.”

“People who experience evil may certainly desire to perpetuate it, to pay it forward. But it is also possible to learn good by experiencing evil.”

p. 153

The primary source of suffering for those taking a defeatist view on the evil nature of life is that they are allowing the perfect to be the enemy of the good: Because perfection can not be achieved, we should simply flip the table on the game of life, rather than play things out along the course we have been set on, and especially recognize the progress that we are making along the way.

Suffering could very well be the bottom layer of life, in the same way that the base layer of a civilization is violence: a nation, in it’s simplest form, is an occupied land mass that is defended by a military. Without that defense, any state will simply be annexed by a bigger nation.

One could view this harsh reality as proof that humans are inherently violent and evil, but it might not be the whole picture, as plenty of Good, or less violence, can be achieved when warring tribes and states eventually do settle into large nations. World War II ended 80 years ago, and the only reason why the Cold War is described as such is because if arms were taken up directly, the presence of nuclear bombs on both sides would have achieved a little something called Mutual Assured Destruction.

Maybe “War is Peace” (1984) after all, or at least the threat of it.

“She says she hopes that all her suffering is her own fault…if it’s her fault, she might be able to do something about it. If it’s God’s fault, however–if reality itself is flawed, hell-bent on ensuring her misery–then she is doomed. She couldn’t change the structure of reality itself. But maybe she could change her own life.”

p. 154

Reality is indeed flawed. For what other reason do you suspect we created the concept of Heaven? But in the same way that is not rational to deny Life when that feature is already built-in through Death, it’s not rational to add to our suffering, especially and doubly so when we ponder about Life’s inherent suffering.

In this respect, all the non-physical pain we experience is merely a result of our intelligence: emotional and mental dissatisfaction.

The Buddhists have already studied this matter, and they’ve come to the conclusion that the source of suffering is our attachments/cravings/desires, but also our aversions.

It’s Not About Doing

This episode is titled as such because the suffering that comes from philosophers like Tolstoy is sourced from this belief that they are somehow responsible for the suffering of the world. However, this is not entirely unique when we also observe the burnout people are experiencing from the new social phenomenon of “Hustle Culture”. While we’re at it, let’s also throw in all the religious people in the confessional box disturbed at the thought that they are sinners.

It’s not about doing because there’s always some impossible standard we’re trying to meet to make ourselves better. There’s always someone telling you what to do and how to think and feel, myself included. But we hardly ever get advice that we should just be. We are Human Beings after all, not Human Doings. Now, you may think I am advocating for everyone to just sit on their ass and do nothing, but not quite, because to be Human, or anything else that is alive, is to always naturally be doing something.

“Change is life. Stagnation is death. If you don’t change, you die. It’s that simple. It’s that scary.” ― Leonard Sweet

Unless you have received some special training, if you want to practice some prolonged meditation or other inactivity, you will eventually grow hungry, and if you suppress that hunger you will eventually die.

There’s always going to be something that we want, and therefore something to do. But when these desires and actions are not presented to us in the correct way, without a sufficient level of self-knowledge, these actions encounter an incredible amount of resistance, draining more of our natural energy rather than fulfilling us, even if we have identified that the end goal is a particularly pleasing one.

Every person is too complex to know themselves completely, and we all contain wisdom that we cannot comprehend. So, simply stop, when you apprehend, however dimly, that you should stop…

Your experience will improve, as you stop distorting it with inauthentic actions. You will then begin to discover new, more subtle things that you are doing wrong. Stop doing those, too. After some months and years of diligent effort, your life will become simpler and less complicated.

Your judgement will improve. You will untangle your past.You will become stronger and less bitter. You will move more confidently into the future. You will stop making your life unnecessarily difficult.”

p.158

Recently, I reconsidered my entire view on the practice of No-Fap. Firstly, I had already begun reducing my porn and masturbation frequency before I ever knew about the community, and was proud of my moderation back then too. I was in balance.

However, joining No-Fap is high-highs and low-lows. Just look at the thumbnail below.

Think about it. Somewhere, there’s a guy who just fapped and went on with his day, but these No-Fap gurus fap one time in six months (or longer) and have to hide it from their subscribers for several days, making this whole dramatic show of it that they’re crushed but will come back stronger, and ultimately calling it a “relapse”, as if they actually had a genuine addiction in the first place that was crippling like their life, and not their own natural sexual urges that were just misdirected towards the internet.

It’s a complete joke.

These men are unbalanced. Find the real source of pain, what’s really missing in your life, and stop this dick measuring charade.

So It’s not about doing anymore. I’m not going to do No Fap.

Yes, No Fap did help me learn plenty about myself, but while doing the practice everything felt like it was about sex, but it was truly about my emotions. I may have touched on this in my previous No Fap updates, but it feels more clear to me now because I have let go of the aversion that the No Fap community has against the acts of watching porn and masturbation.

PMO isn’t that enjoyable now only for the sole reason that it feels like me just throwing a tantrum, because I know it’s not what I really want in life: It’s me settling for low quality instant gratification to distract me from some greater dissatisfaction I have with my life. But this has little to do with sex, and more to do with emotional escape, which takes many other forms which No-Fap alone will not allow you to capture.

We may want to hustle, desire perfection, or to become more like God, but if we have not gotten to know ourselves and nurtured our authentic expression through Monk Mode, such high pursuits, especially for prestige, could end up hurting us.

Julien Blanc once said that self-improvement is actually a form of self-hatred, as it’s an explicit belief that you are currently not good enough.

So how excellent would it be to somehow find the perfect balance in life, in which we are content with where we are but also striving for improvement at the same time?

I believe we can do this by simply falling in line with our nature.

“Alexander Solzhenitsyn had every reason to question the structure of existence when he was imprisoned in a Soviet labor camp, in the middle of the terrible twentieth century. He had served as a soldier on the ill-prepared Russian front lines in the face of a Nazi invasion. He had been arrested, beaten, and thrown into prison by his own people. Then he was struck by cancer…

Then he asked himself the most difficult of questions: had he personally contributed to the catastrophe of his life? If so, how? He remembered his unquestioning support of the Communist Party in his early years. He reconsidered his whole life…

Then he wrote The Gulag Archipelago, a history of the Soviet prison camp system…One man’s decision to change his life, instead of cursing fate, shook the whole pathological system of communist tyranny to its core.

pp. 154-155

The most powerful tool you will ever have in this life is the simple act of observing yourself, because the most power you have in this reality is in regards to yourself.

When you take responsibility and ownership, and wrestle it away from the hands of God, and the Devil, or the government, the Leftists, the Illuminati, and the mysterious and ubiquitous “They”, you become the most powerful and free Being in the universe.

All the things that you rely on, even positively, control you. The things that make you angry and uncomfortable control you too, and these states will remain until you can realize that it is not your circumstances that cause your suffering but your perspective on the circumstances and your attachment to the drama you have created within it.

It’s not about doing because your focus makes it into a problem, and we are unhappy until problems become solved. But when we settle into the present, when we just be, we are satisfied by progress and growth, in all things, and not just the cold dead end of things.

Perfection, in a way, is almost stagnation. But humans, and our flawed reality, is blessed to always be in motion.

You can choose to be dissatisfied with yourself and your circumstances, but you are always moving, and always growing, in some direction. And that direction is your nature, and Life itself.

So be quiet, be still, and listen to that inner voice, and feel from within to where the wind blows.


Meditate on these matters.

And I will not see you on the Far Side, but next week Sunday at 12PM, every week for the rest of this series.

12 Rules For Monk Mode #5: Play By The Rules

This is the fifth of a 12-part series remixing Jordan Peterson’s book 12 Rules For Lifeone chapter a week to coincide with the 12 weeks remaining for my one year celibacy vow.


We can argue all we like, but the fact is we have new rules in our society.

Why else did we go MGTOW? The legal rules in divorce and family court made it too risky to get married, and the new social rules of #MeToo make it too risky to date.

As we know, there is a section of us that are still in the Red Pill Rage, and frequent these circles that continuously churn out content related to the various ways we are degrading as a society, especially pertaining to the behavior of women. But returning to the scene of the crime isn’t going to help you heal.

“It is the things that occur every single day that truly make up our lives, and time spent the same way over and again adds up at an alarming rate…

No matter how good your intentions, or how sweet and tolerant your temperament, you will not maintain good relations with someone you fight with for a month and half of work weeks per year. Resentment will inevitably build.

Even if it doesn’t, all that wasted, unpleasant time could clearly be spent in more productive and useful and less stressful and more enjoyable activity.

p. 117, 118

We need to start seeing our lives more holistically, through the theme of compound interest. Every day is just a single brick to build the castle walls that will one day become the headquarters of your empire. Every day won’t be easy; some will feel like pennies, others like a dollar. But as long as you stay focused on building momentum, you will steadily see growth in positive directions.

The issue at hand, of course, is the lack of emotional support on dealing with the discontent within the “rage” phase. Men just don’t have the same emotional release ability that women do. As much as feminists want to believe it is due to toxic masculinity, the presence of testosterone makes it extremely difficult to physically expel those difficult emotions through therapeutic discussion and/or crying.

As men, we need to find a better outlet.

I’m not even willing to admit that I’ve gotten over the rage phase. I am simply choosing to ignore it by going Monk Mode. I know for certain that nothing positive will come about from my participation in the circles I mentioned earlier, but something of worth can be achieved if I instead seek within.

Today’s episode is about how we have actually gained much more than we have lost by going MGTOW Monk Mode.

“We assume that rules will irremediably inhibit what would otherwise be the boundless and intrinsic creativity of our children, even though the scientific literature clearly indicates, first, that creativity beyond the trivial is shockingly rare and, second, that strict limitations facilitate rather than inhibit creative achievement.”

p. 124

People view the lives of celibates, ascetics, and minimalists as ones with strict limitations, but what if those are the groups of people that are able to express and collect the most experience out of life?

Most people are slaves to their food and sex drives, and so fasting and abstinence are actually practices of freedom. Likewise, “the things you own end up owning you”, and so we put a limit on our possessions too through minimalism, so that we may move more freely.

“Discipline is freedom”, after all.

Not only am I on a one year celibacy vow, but I am also practicing No Fap, and so far I have gone six months without consuming any porn. However, the urge to relapse has been very strong lately.

But every day that I struggle with it, I continue to search deeper about where those feelings are coming from, and why? Is it loneliness, or lack of self expression? Equally I also ask myself why I should continue with these limitations, but then I look back on all the time spent on this experiment, and how putting a hard cap on my sexual exploration has allowed it to express itself in other ways.

Firstly, it was interesting to see myself seek out romance through watching anime, which I discussed in an earlier post: 1 Year Celibacy Update – 98 Days Remaining

A failure to properly sublimate my dissatisfaction and desires led me to engaging in escapism.

After the Yoko incident, I chose more wholesome anime, but still consumed it for a slightly similar reason. Over the last month, I have binge watched around 300 episodes of Naruto, with the urgency stemming from wanting to get to the end of the series and the start of its sequel, Boruto, as the romance between the main character and a love interest is finally resolved with them marrying and having children.

I was not interested in watching the filler episodes this time, but the only ones I would have sat through were the ones with Naurto and Hinata, so I actually searched YouTube for a compilation of all their exchanges so I wouldn’t miss out on anything. One of the YouTube comments said “I wish Hinata was real.”, and I really resonated with that, I must admit.

Yeah, I made it to Boruto now, by the way. I finally became proficient enough at my job to watch episodes alongside it, and was able to put in some 9+ hour work days to finish up Shippuden and get to the wedding. Last night, I actually dreamed that I went on two dates with Hinata.

But alas, this is just one observation.

I’ve been drafting a lot of creative content recently, not like these blog posts, but music, lyrics, novels, and even video game ideas.

What was most interesting as well was that my most recent idea for a novel had mature sexual themes in it, which is obviously a direct expression of my sexual emotions, but of course redirected in a more creative way, rather than all that energy being expended into the void through consuming porn and masturbating.

This experience has taught me that when we choose to go Monk Mode, we must take time to reflect on our progress and ascertain what we have gained through our experiments, as opposed to a mourning of our non-participation within the mainstream.

So many men are treating the difficulties in dating and marriage these days as such a tragedy, but what if it’s a blessing in disguise?

Play By The Rules

Each person’s private trouble cannot be solved by a social revolution, because revolutions are destabilizing and dangerous. We have learned to live together and organize our complex societies slowly and incrementally, over vast stretches of time, and we do not understand with sufficient exactitude why what we are doing works. Thus, altering our ways carelessly in the name of some ideological shibboleth is likely to produce far more trouble than good, given the suffering that even small revolutions generally produce.”

pp. 119

There’s a running fantasy within MGTOW for more men to become red-pilled and completely opt out of the system as a protest in order to restore society. Simps and spinsters get pies in their face, and declines in marriage rates and the closing of bridal shops receives applause. What was first an underground hideout for men seeking self-preservation has now, in some spaces, become a headquarters for a quiet social revolution.

What is ironic, though, is that the quote above is actually targeted at the more liberal groups pushing for far more social change through feminism and other diversity affairs. But I am opposed to both sides, however, as I stated in the previous episode, as I see conservatism (not politically, but culturally) decreasing, which I symbolized as ice melting, and instead of trying to freeze it back, we must see the future and know that water eventually evaporates, and then re-forms into ice much later.

A great practice in Stoicism is learning what is within our control, and foregoing all the things that aren’t is essentially the theme of Episode 3: Only Seek Your Power. However, this episode will differ slightly, as it is more about seeing worth (gratitude) in the very circumstances we struggle against.

Crisis and Opportunity

The Chinese characters for “crisis” are commonly interpreted in the West as a cross between “danger” and “opportunity.” This is particularly why I see futility in engorging ourselves in social change in modern times, as there’s always some other group that is benefiting (seeing “opportunity”) from whatever scenario you have labelled as “danger”.

For instance, the Pick-up Artists have benefited greatly from the sexual liberation of women through feminism, but more conservative men have obviously been bit by the bullet at the other end.

I don’t necessarily want men to become less conservative, but if your society has become so, I absolutely do not want them to swim against the tide, or yell at the sky. At this point, common advice to men who still desire the family life is to completely abandon America altogether, and marry abroad, (with strong emphasis on staying abroad as well).

“The evidence strongly suggests that human beings have become more peaceful, rather than less so, as time has progressed and societies became larger and more organized.

The !Kung bushmen of Africa…had a yearly murder rate of 40 per 100,00, which declined by more than 30% once they became subject to state authority. This is a very instructive example of complex social structures serving to reduce, not exacerbate, the violent tendencies of human beings.”

p. 121

Feminism can be said to be a consequence of peace and prosperity, and likewise, we could also be in the middle of the “good times create weak men/weak men create hard times” portion of the cycle. (If you’ve never heard of this, subsequently, hard times will create strong men, and strong men create good times.)

But we should step back and realize that we all benefit from this period of prosperity, even if it is degrading us culturally. The amount of wars in the world has been decreasing, and if I wasn’t so academically capable (and didn’t mind cutting my hair), I would have joined the military a long time ago to escape my circumstances. The military is more likely a safer career than a police officer these days.

When the world around us becomes too difficult, we should immediately stop seeking outward and only seek inward for our expression of power. But when we become strong enough to look externally again, we should cease in only seeing the danger, and instead always seek out the opportunities.

This also has nothing to do with optimism or positive thinking; it’s just about not allowing the perfect to be the enemy of the good. Of course, society can be improved. Everything can be improved, and to seek that is to be a living human, constantly in motion. But someone somewhere actually thinks things are good enough, or that this situation is even better. You may not be seeing the full picture, and you could use more objectivity as well.

So what is playing by the rules, exactly?

Simple. Stop trying to change society. Don’t change the rules of the game, externally. If you want to keep the rules you play by, simply change where you play.

“It’s also not for the best that all human corruption is uncritically laid at society’s feet. That conclusion merely displaces the problem, back in time. It explains nothing, and solves no problems. If society is corrupt, but not the individuals within it, then where did the corruption originate? How is it propagated? It’s a one-sided, deeply ideological theory.”

p. 118

I absolutely do not agree with America’s level of debt. But the citizens are in debt too, especially women, who hold the majority of the student loan debt in the country. Colttaine, near the end of his Matrix Behind The Matrix video believes that the bankers are never going to let that money walk, but there’s nothing stopping the majority of the voting base (women) from seeking out a way to socialize that debt, especially with the infinite printing press that is the Federal Reserve.

As someone with a 767 credit score, I think the country is absolutely rotten just for this respect only. But nonetheless, America is still the last institution expected to fall, and has only had it’s credit rating fall to an AA- since 2012, and at least before the Corona Virus fiasco.

Am I going to protest? Not at all. I’m going to continue to pay my taxes and be a good citizen (with my dollars at least, my cryptocurrency doesn’t exist), but I still definitely see “danger” here, as I don’t want to be around for when it’s finally time to tighten our belts, and so I’m simply going to quietly change MY game. I will ghost in plain sight, but secretly work on my exit strategy. I can find more fiscally responsible countries, or I can start to acquire more real assets, like land and self-sufficiency, and rely less on fiat currency.


The world is such a big place with endless opportunities, and so I am becoming deeply suspicious on why we hold such strong attachments to certain things, especially as MGTOW, that we feel we must lament it’s loss and fight to restore it.

Conservatism, by definition, is not creative. Once again, I do not have an issue with Conservatism itself, but only when one desires it when the rules have clearly changed. If you are Red Pill and you are like this, you are in the rage phase. If you are blue pill and you are like this, you will probably get divorced or #MeToo’d.

Now has it become clear?

Playing by the rules is just Stoicism and non-attachment. However, you can also benefit from the crisis if you play along and beat them at their own game. TFM has repeated that trans activists have done more for men’s rights than the actual Men’s Rights Movement, and TFM himself identifies as a “masculine presenting trans-gendered lesbian”, and encourages others to do so with a legal gender change, as there have been several success stories of men saving their jobs and even their financial aid for school by just changing that one letter on their ID card.

If we live in Clown World, and you’re not a clown, then the joke is on you.

Jordan Peterson explained quite well that despite how much children rebel against structure, it is actually good for them, as regulated meal and sleeping times prevents them from becoming irritable, and a lack of discipline from the parent leads the children to become frustrated and angry all the time, especially out in public.

So rules are good for us, but the best rules we can play by are the ones we apply to ourselves. After all, you don’t have to be MGTOW and red pilled. But you keep choosing the lifestyle for a reason, and it’s probably because you recognize, maybe not even consciously, that some rules, some limitations, actually allow you to grow.

For example, you may have realized, despite your tantrums, that cutting out women from your life has saved you time and money that allows you to now more seriously pursue your hobbies or career.

So, play by the strictest rules of all, and go Monk Mode, and see how far the roots and branches of the Tree of Life can truly grow.

Meditate on these matters.

And I will not see you on the Far Side, but next week Sunday at 12PM, every week for the rest of this series.

Thank you for reading. – Monk Moon Base

Responding to Comments – Celebrating 20 Videos Published

Back at it again with another milestone, another review of comments.

First off, let’s get all the bullshit out of the way. THE FUCKING SPAMMERS

The first bot spotted was Logan. Then, Bananarama gassed me up on the Third Act Freestyle video I did, but this one I actually fell for since I was a bit excited about releasing that particular video. But after I replied, I was suspicious about the profile, and I confirmed it was a spam comment to draw me to their channel and watch their Fortnite videos.

The next day, Liam attempted to do the same, and I knew it was spam because it was an instant comment as soon as I uploaded the video.

Then, I started browsing around YouTube like usual, and managed to find Liam again, but now there was a slightly different banana account, but repeating the same line. The uploader was completely fooled.

Finally, this morning, a third banana account has appeared. This one was actually directly feeding into a different channel completely. Also, I decided to check back on the original Bananarama comment, and now, the username is “Caria“, feeding into the same channel that Bobbette is being used for. WHAT THE HECK??

I’m not sure if I should expose them so other people could know, or just block/ignore them. It’s only slightly interesting because it’s a bit of a recent turn of events.

Alright, no more robots. On to comments from real people!

A Little More Housekeeping

Another reminder that you must keep the language clean and not post more than one link in the comments on YouTube or else your comment will automatically be hidden by YouTube’s quality bot.

Sh*t Talkers

Perfect that Smart Halayla is back, because he was the smart one that actually posted too many links and is being referred to in the previous comment for having his content was hidden.

Many are parroting this idea that we all need to unite against feminism. This is simply just a marketing tool for PUAs to prevent the manosphere from raising their standards, trashing their content, and going MGTOW. PUAs/Red Pill benefit from feminism because they encourage men to engage with sexually liberated women. What do you think “spinning plates” is after all?

Allow me to clue you in even further. Men are and always will be in power. Feminism only exists because men shared their power with women. As soon as that stops, feminism will die. So, I am free to be superior to every other man if I want to, because that has nothing to do with how we interact with women.

Lastly, if you look at the chart below, you”ll see why MGTOW is above Red Pill, literally, as the latter’s philosophy doesn’t go past level 2. End of discussion.


Next, we have an odd picture from Triggered Deplorable, who got triggered by my thumbnail photo for my Kim and Kanye Are Like Bulma and Vegeta video. Apparently, Kanye developed this image himself for his “stronger” video.

No Fap

The first two comments are responses to my 5 Tips For Starting and Thriving on No Fap post on Publish0x.

I’ve heard great reviews of that book recommended by walkonwayvs. One of the rules that stood out to me was “live as if your father is dead.”

I’m very thankful to Atalosgaia for responding to Cameronomnia, because as you know on this channel we always take a reason and logic-based approach.

That said, I met Saiyan MGTOW in the comments on a video from the Sexual Kung Fu channel, and he has a lot of spiritual content. Saiyan MGTOW also makes content. And speaking of #protectyourpower

Protect Your Manhood is my favorite Itachi MGTOW video.

And doubling back to Saiyans, these are some comments for my Life & Fitness Lesson From Vegeta’s First Time Super Saiyan blog post. In short, the post was about how I was using anger to power my workouts, and I reached a break point, just like Vegeta did when his training almost got him killed, and let go of it all and entered a flow state.

For Aerials comment, If I’m being motivated by a negative emotion, it is most likely dissatisfaction. I’m starting to become exhausted by rage, and it’s much easier to just detach from it. That’s why I’m not experiencing many of the “Red Pill Rage” symptoms because I just detached and went Monk Mode. That said, I did watch Chad Marco’s recent podcast about the Female Dating Strategy sub-reddit, and it definitely confirmed that the rage is still there. But the only solution I have for that right now is more Monk Mode!

For Atalosgaia, I agree and think “letting go” should be a by-product of acceptance, because if one tries to let go consciously, they usually approach it as if they are performing this non-violent act of allowing it to pass, but truthfully, by labeling it, you are in conflict with yourself.

Funny Comments

Publish7 lightens up my Functional Nihilism and Creative Hedonism post with a comment about filling holes. Well, a hole needs to be filled for you to be conceived, you need to fill a hole with food and water to survive, and you fill a hole in the ground when you die. I guess he’s right.

Bonus commentary on wildTurtle’s comment, my favorite song from Adele is “Chasing Pavements”

The Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

In my last celebration article, I specifically hoped for Philskie1 to still be around, and he came in clutch, not even concerned about the giveaway, but just supporting me for my videos, as always. I really appreciate this guy haha. Thanks!

And secondly we have mgtow lucid dream, whom I will admit is my favorite YouTube viewer, mostly for his sick username, and his profile pic is hilarious. But as for his message, Monk Mode is a beautiful and vastly overlooked way of life. So many MGTOW talk about it, but I want to be the one to actually show what it looks like, especially from the perspective as a younger man, as most of these guys happy to be done with women probably have declining testosterone due to age to thank for that. But I still have my lightning rod, and that’s why I think it’s imperative that I make content about my experience, reasoning, and results on this path.

Thanks for your support, friend.

For Study_Guide‘s comment, I did not really intend for this giveaway to actually increase my subscriber count. It was only at the last minute when I had to add in tags that I realized it could have this effect. Because of it, my YouTube subscriber count has now surpassed BitChute.

For the next two comments, well, they said they want to enter, but they never did, probably thinking just subscribing and commenting will get them a ticket. So far, only Owlz has a valid entry. (Update: Internet Funny Man has finally entered). After this article is published, I will begin recording it, so the giveaway will end a day or two after this. So there should still be some time if you’re reading this fresh. GIVEAWAY DETAILS HERE: https://moonbasemgtow.com/2020/05/26/20-amazon-card-giveaway-celebrating-20-videos-published/

Content Creators

Unfortunately for rhythmbhardwaj9, his comment came after all those false-entries (and earlier spam comments), and so I wasn’t entirely trusting that he actually thought my Virtue of Youth post was insightful. I’m sorry bro, but I’m not going to check out your work right now, and your profile pic looks like it belongs in Majora’s Mask LOL.

Gabriel Bradley is thinking about adding his own perspective to the 80/20 Dating Rule. I’m always going to encourage others to make content. As for my own content, the message is superb, but the quality needs work. However, the person that inspired me the most to make content was someone with far worse quality than mine. No shade, but shout outs to you, Alkaline Bodybuilding Finance.

We can get paralyzed when we see high quality content, and think we can never replicate it. Sometimes we need something approachable to get the ball rolling. I only started making serious efforts for my fiction writing after reading the Scott Pilgrim books for this very reason (I think the movie is better).

It’s strange, because I’m actually a perfectionist, but I just don’t have the time to invest in perfecting the quality of my videos for now, so in the meantime, I hope it’s approachable enough for new users to be inspired to take a crack at it themselves.

Content Previews

I also rushed my Third Act freestyle video as well, but luckily, Atalosgaia has some advice for me on future music production.

I’m planning on releasing a lot more music soon. They will just be covers for now until I do get the hardware to handle production apps, so hopefully I can at least perfect vocal recording so the tracks can be decent. I am going to show off some of my singing in the next one, and I will put way more effort than I did on Third Act, especially because the lyrics are more tame so I won’t feel embarrassed about recording it in my full house right now as we are still in quarantine. I’m recording all my videos in a fucking closet to block the sound travel haha.

I might make a health update on this, but if not, I can just tell you now that I’ve been doing an alternate day fasting challenge, and today is Day 6. I’ve tried it out before but I’m way more disciplined now, and I might consider adding in dry fasting again as well, since there is just two more days of fasting for the challenge to be over.

So far, I have noticed that I’ve gotten way more full of the meals I used to eat, and drinking less water, so my new baseline is actually saving me money. I ate 1,660 calories yesterday, but that’s not quite the sweet spot yet. I also think I’ve made significant progress on the recession of my Candida symptoms, so hopefully that will be the main focus of my next update if it’s finally cleared. Stay tuned.

Bonus Comments

This was not on any of my videos, but just comments I found elsewhere. I just want to highlight this because I’ve always experienced great aversions to things that are mainstream, and naturally gravitate towards niches. YouTube comments are starting to become predictable on popular videos. To make matters worse, YouTube keeps recommending old videos to everyone, and the comments are fully aware of this as well. YouTube is just becoming robotic and inauthentic.

I was around in ’05/’06. Why did we get rid of video responses? That’s still such a dope feature to me. YouTube sucks. But right now, it’s library can’t be replicated.

Fin

I would like to make more videos, especially since I’m finally about to start getting into my more hard-hitting stuff. However, my draft list is starting to fill up, and I am starting a new series: The 12 Rules for (Monk Mode) Life, in which I will be remixing Jordan Peterson’s book one chapter a week starting this Friday, as I will have exactly 12 weeks left of my One Year Celibacy vow. It’s the perfect way to finish strong, review all that I’ve learned, and advance to new heights if my Monk Mode is extended. You don’t want to miss out.

1 Year Celibacy Update – 98 Days Remaining

I have chosen no better time than now to already have been in celibate monk mode for the past several months now, as the lifestyle has served as training for what life would become during lock down before it actually happened. However, I wouldn’t say my practice has completely insulated me from the social distancing side effects.

In fact, I feel more obligated to restart my social life to make up for the great blow dealt to the pyschosphere from this quarantine suppressing our humanity.

Yes, I do appreciate solitude, but I know for a fact that tensions and desires have been pressurizing as we eagerly wait for the return to normal human interactions, especially the romantic kind. I almost don’t want to miss that initial wave of thirst when the flood gates open.

But as a MGTOW in Monk Mode, the method of determining the next direction of my life isn’t that simple.

While the average person had their social life forcibly removed, and therefore feels like something is missing, I voluntarily replaced my social life with my work and personal achievements long ago. Getting back into dating and socializing after such a long time will actually result in a trade-off or loss, as less work, money, and progress will be made.

If I was still watching TV and playing video-games, it would be very easy to just say I am simply replacing some of my previous pastimes with dating. But lately, my main hobby has been to work on Moon Base MGTOW, and any spare time after that is left for exercise and self-study.

“If a man has already identified that he will not extend any long-term commitments to any woman, then there is truly nothing of lasting value that can be created through your relationships with women. Short-term dating thus becomes another form of cheap entertainment.”

Creativity Is Leisure: Why You Should Consume Only What You Intend To Create

That said, this hardcore focus is quite recent, and I have no idea how permanent this new found logic truly is. It was only a little over 30 days ago that my binge watching of Gurren Laggan caused me to have a nocturnal emission , and if you look at the picture below, I don’t think I need to explain why I was so interested in the show.

A failure to properly sublimate my dissatisfaction and desires led me to engaging in escapism.

After the Yoko incident, I chose more wholesome anime, but still consumed it for a slightly similar reason. Over the last month, I have binge watched around 300 episodes of Naruto, with the urgency stemming from wanting to get to the end of the series and the start of its sequel, Boruto, as the romance between the main character and a love interest is finally resolved with them marrying and having children.

I was not interested in watching the filler episodes this time, but the only ones I would have sat through were the ones with Naurto and Hinata, so I actually searched YouTube for a compilation of all their exchanges so I wouldn’t miss out on anything. One of the YouTube comments said “I wish Hinata was real.”, and I really resonated with that, I must admit.

But fast forward to today, I haven’t watched the show in over a week, and gaming feels like a chore. Every time a thought of being leisurely comes to mind, I counter it with a possibility that I could instead squeeze in more productivity.

The same sexual energy I had to keep pressing “Play Next” for Naruto is now what I use to power through my quota hours and push out more creative content across my websites. And it almost feels like I’m just getting started. I haven’t hit the wall yet, and I just might stay in Monk Mode.

But I can’t say that I can attribute all of my recent success to suppressing my sex drive, but in fact it is because of my sex drive that I am so successful.

“But maybe, at the back of my mind, I know things are only going this well because at the end of it all, I still desire the whole carrot... All my debts will be paid off and I’ll have my own space. I’ll have more money and free time to date.

So, if I start running any faster, or my goal seems to be getting closer, it’s only because I’ve gotten hornier, and hungrier.

INTO THE DEPTHS OF DESIRE – DRY FASTING + NO FAP HARD MODE/MONK

Indeed, I am trying my absolute best to crash into the wall of my productivity so that I finally do have an excuse to take a night off and go out dating every once in a while. But as I’ve said, it’s not that easy to do that as a MGTOW.

I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve been influenced by hanging out too long in MGTOW circles that I want to appear to be super logical about my social situation, or that it truly is a genuine feeling of self-guilt that I’ll receive if I’m not making a giant dent in the universe everyday with the maximum amount of progress towards my goals.

But unfortunately it’s even more than that; My head has never been more clear these days and I’m the most focused I’ve ever been.

Even though I considered signing up for some dating apps recently to have something already set up when the lock down is over, the time I would spend browsing and chatting would be reminiscent of my previous wasteful habits infinitely scrolling through social media. I’m already so close to kicking my YouTube habit as well, as I have the ability to refresh the video feed on there too which results in small time sinks.

Essentially, the puzzle is, now that I’ve cultivated such a magnificent focus, should I continue building on it or can I safely divert my attention? Can more self-knowledge be attained right now through simply observing but not engaging with my desires, or is a social/dating life really a dimension worth exploring at this time?

I’m not sure yet, but I’m so thankful I still have 98 more days to figure it all out.

41 Articles Celebration: Responding To Comments!

It’s that time again!

I now have a total of five platforms I publish my content on, so that’s five times the chance for more comments. I’ll be shouting out and responding to all of them here, even if I replied already. I’ll also provide some extra backstory to some of the articles referenced here as well, so you’re not just scrolling through everyone just to get to yours.

Let’s go.

Simple Comments

First thing’s first, got to shout out Philskie1. He was the first comment right after my 10 Videos, 25 Articles celebration video, and then he came back to hype me up on Fears of Leaving Monk Mode. I haven’t published any videos since last month, and I’m not happy about that, so now that I’m at 41 articles, I think I’ll make a better effort to also catch my videos up in number.

I’ll be back soon, and I hope you’re still around! Thank you Philskie1.

Primalties liked my Minimalism and Mental Mobility video, and so did Brian K Leaks. Maybe I should have asked why they were so intrigued and thankful for the video. I hope you guys see this and let me know! Thank you.

Funny Comments

WHY ARE YOU AN IDIOT left me a very beautiful poem on my Only Dating For Status video. I’m quite speechless from it actually, thank you.

I think Smart Halaya is another one of those types that comment without actually watching the video, which sucks because Is There More To Life? is one of my favorite videos!

But anyway, he did leave some pretty funny clips about how Muslim husbands keep their wives in check and how Islam supports it. Also, the censorship isn’t malicious in this case, I think it’s fair for the algorithm to be suspicious of comments containing too many links. Be mindful of that guys! Thanks.

Article Comments

Most of my comments come from my video channels, so before I get to them I’d like to highlight some feedback from my blog sites since we are celebrating the progress made there after all. These comments are from Publish0x, a new blogging website that pays you in crypto for reading and writing articles! I’ve been backing up all my content there, and slightly revising the stories as I go.

Two Questions To End Old Habits

Yep, I don’t think kids will be able to look that far into the future as I advise. (What is the end goal of this action?). The only problem I have with kids playing video games nowadays is that iPads and phones give off too much EMF radiation. I at least grew up with brothers, so we were able to play with toys or make-believe if we didn’t play any vidya, but with the low birth rate we have these days there are lots of kids growing up alone, and that’s kind of boring.

I did play way too many video games when I was younger though. In middle school, I played so much Monster Hunter in gym class, my school was shocked when I was on the winning relay race team that won us a trophy. Then I got XBox Live in high school, and I didn’t even learn how to play basketball until after I got kicked out of college.

If I could go back though, I would still keep the games, but cut back on academics and increase sports. Being valedictorian was pretty good, but honestly I could have been a track-and-field star and have gone to a good college on scholarship anyway.

Game design and fiction is all I have now. I hope I can be a genius in that field too, otherwise, I’ve completely squandered my life and am supremely fucked! Haha!

Thank you Aerials.

It’s Harder To Come Out As Bisexual Rather Than Gay

It’s funny how Snarfy thought no one would reply. I should be having that fear! This article actually got two downvotes, so I’m the one who needs to be thankful.

Who knows how far back the LGBT goes in history and evolution, but if we do live in a sick society today because it’s so prevalent now, I would at least like LGBT to be treated as a symptom of society’s said sickness, rather than a cause for it. Also, I’m sure these pro-natal religious breeders have never considered the exponential growth of the human population. That’s the real sickness. I don’t think many people realize they should be grateful some people are pairing off into genetic dead ends.

Thanks again, Snarfy.

Why I Quit Medium.com And Think The Site Will Die

My most upvoted and most tipped story on Publish0x!

I honestly could have made a go-of-it on Medium. Two of my articles actually got over 3-5k views. But the site was just becoming a dumpster fire. One of the last writers I followed knew it was just a numbers game and would publish multiple times a day, recycling a lot of content.

I also never mentioned the political bias on that website (obviously social justice left-leaning folks there), and that’s another tell tale for the longevity of the website. But the Attention-Based approach I have here on my site with the Brave Browser and on Publish0x is the way of the future anyway.

I hated the subscription feature on Medium from the start. Thanks woodenwookie.

Stand Alone Comments

There was a misunderstanding here, as all my uploads on MGTOW.tv were accidentally behind a paywall. It was pretty cool for him to call me out for it and show some curiosity on what I had to offer because it let me know about that problem, so I really appreciate this one here.

My content should always be free, but I do have some ideas for crowdfunded content in the future. In the meantime though, if you ever have a topic you would like me to cover in both article and video format, you may kindly buy me a coffee at Ko-fi.com.

Buy Me a Coffee at ko-fi.com

The standard price is now $9, but hey, people pay more for about 30 seconds on the TFM show, so I think it doesn’t hurt to ask. It’s only there for the people that really love me anyway, and extra sweat and research will go into any commissioned work.

Anyway, thank you SentientVerity!

Well, I don’t know much about the crimes of Warren Buffet, and should ask to be enlightened on that matter. He can’t be worse than George Soros, right?

Speaking of enlightenment, I too have some thoughts on nihilism and this pandemic.

Sneak Peek: I think the article will be called On The Surface of the Soul, which was teased in my last article as well. But I think I’ll write it after this whole thing blows over. I hate bandwagons.

Thank you BlackPilledBeltMonkkido

I too love helping people, maybe too much, actually. People should really be careful about telling me their goals, because I would actually be there to help them and make sure they see it through.

Working in food and retail killed any chance of me becoming a simp though. In some places, only the men were required to work the stock room, and yet the women would get the same pay as us. A supermarket I worked at was quite egalitarian though, and I always reminded the women anytime they wanted me to do a “favor” for them (aka, their work) that we had equal pay.

By the way, I like Blue Moon and Guinness personally, but I can say Natural Ice and Golden Monkey are two beers that have hurt me haha. Thank you VulcanCannon!

*Rubs hands* Okay!

TFM was the man that got me into MGTOW, actually, after his episode on the Red Man Group (which I was a fan of at the time). I couldn’t argue against his logic and have been going my own way ever since. Months later, the Red Man Group started shaming men with sex dolls, and didn’t even have the balls to invite TFM again. Truly a pathetic group.

I’m no TFM fanboy though. It seems like he keeps repeating himself because he produces so much content, along with Sandman. I personally enjoy Sandman because he can see the future, literally with his pre-cognitive dreaming, but also because he’s always theorizing about the next trends, and he got me on the Brave Browser, which has worked out well.

I’ve checked the archives here and there on that MGTOW Mount Rushmore you mentioned. I still actively watch Stardusk but he’s a bit long-winded sometimes. My favorite MGTOW today are Happy Humble Hermit, Renegade #1, Ronin Man (wild card) and Red Pill on Steroids. RIP Kurama/Itachi Reloaded

Thanks OldWolf207.

Yes, I agree. My MGTOW way is to make every effort to keep yourself unbound. Self-sufficiency is one of the ultimate goods.

Thank you mgtow lucid dream. Dope username.

And Speaking of MGTOW is freedom….

Big John

Mr X. calls Big John a cheap suit, and BlackPilledBeltMonkkido says John is a Champion of MGTOW. Interesting.

Honestly, I never really watched any of Big John’s content, I just used that one segment for my arguement against Rollo Tomassi’s article. But I think Mr. X is another guy who comments without actually watching the video though.

SilentVerity is back with a very sobering speech on the state of affairs in the manosphere. I never understood why Rollo Tomassi and the RMG would rag on RSD. I suppose it’s just marketing on their end, but to us MGTOW, there’s no difference between them. Even before I was MGTOW I started to notice that there were a few guys in these groups that were logical and wanted a simple life, and these PUA teachers are setting them up for consumerism and sex addiction, and nowadays, divorce and false rape accusations.

No thanks.

We’re going our own way. Thanks guys.

Productivity

I’ve got a treat for you guys. I managed to get mindrapeart to divulge all his resources and routines to pull off the 10+ hours of work he claims to complete daily.

Personally though, I realized I don’t want the extra edge that badly. I feel like any performance enhancements is just stealing from your own body in some way. I’d much rather try to cultivate a force from within, David Goggins style.

I worked nearly seven hours straight today, and it’s been quite satisfying constantly evaluating my progress and finally developing a strategy that keeps me working for so long, and I’m getting better everyday. But, the advice is here for all of you if you want to try-hard it.

mgtow is monk and I have some career goals in common, but I’m really unsure if I will return to college. That said, I think I’m leaning more towards the higher salary jobs now, since we can apparently retire on $200k in south east asia, I might as well take the fastest track to getting to that. But I don’t qualify for financial aid so, it’s doubtful. I might at least try to finish my associates and call it a night.

Thanks guys.

No Fap and Semen Retention

I believe it’s Day 81 on No Fap right now, and Day 36 for my sub-streak of No Porn. Hope you’re doing well Zeal.

Also, Crazy Diamond has come to the same realizations I have, that despite the incredible draw from our sex drive, there is still a deeper dissatisfaction within us that doesn’t allow us to control it. I too have experienced the over-consumption of other vices to cover up my desire to watch naked bodies slamming together.

But now, my sensual dispositions are so much clearer to me. I hope you’ve read Into The Depths of Desire – Dry Fasting + No Fap Hard Mode/Monk to get the full scoop.

You’ve made it this far, so you deserve my real secrets. The deepest red pills I could gather from my fellow companions here.

I demonstrate to X-51 that I only arrive to my esoteric beliefs through logical reasoning. I’ve already left one fairy tale religion, I’m not just going to switch factions.

But we end the responses with Aerials comment, which backs me up and even offers the female perspective on the practice. It was really validating to see this, because this practice is so esoteric, it’s just nice to see another person outside of the circles I study in also confirm that I’m not completely insane for following it. So thank you, Aerials.

Into The Depths of Desire – Dry Fasting + No Fap Hard Mode/Monk

This blog post was originally published on 3/24/20 on my website.

I’ve been Playing on the Hardest Difficulty on my diet and especially on No Fap, which I’ve recently hit a major check point on past the 30 day mark.

Technically, the last PMO was 79 days ago, but the reason why I’m highlighting this particular 34 day streak is because I completely cut out all intentional viewing of sexual imagery. Yes, that even includes avoiding Twitch thots and YouTube click bait.

Sandman is lucky I already followed his channel before all the sex propaganda he has in his videos now.

But the goal of all this isn’t to deny my sexuality. I haven’t taken any vows of celibacy. This is simply a fast from stimulating my sexual desire for a 90-day reboot.

I believe absence does make the heart grow fonder, and I want to know how strong my desire is, and if there truly is something deeper underneath it all.

We’re too overstimulated to know what we really want anymore. Any moment of silence and introspection is smothered each time we refresh the News Feed. Our mental diets are now dictated by the algorithm. We’re procrastinating from being assigned responsibility for our own lives.

Only when we are fasted and deprived can we truly know what’s meaningful and necessary. It’s the only way we can shed ourselves of everything that is artificial.

Of course when you first start fasting or dieting you will settle for any form of sustenance no matter its quality to return you back to your previously perceived equilibrium. But as you persevere, you gain focus and discipline. Former habits and temptations become trivial.

Practicing intentional control over food and sex is in fact a red pill.

I struggled for so long to get past 30 days on the Keto diet because I would miss the taste of my favorite junk foods, but the longer I practiced Keto, the more I realized I was only initiated by the years of good memories and neural pathways associated with the food, and derived less and less actual satisfaction from the foods themselves overtime. By now, with over six months of strict practice under my belt, I’m repulsed just by the smell of certain snacks I used to enjoy. I don’t even have to look at the labels to talk myself out of them anymore. Sugar and high-carb has become the Blue Pill.

I hope I can be able to say the same about porn, masturbation, and mainstream sex as well, but it’s just too soon to tell. In fact, suppressing my sexuality actually interfered with my diet, as I found myself overeating and consuming more entertainment media than usual just to hide from it.

I honestly would not recommend someone focusing on taming both their food and sex drives at once like I am, but like I said, the hardest difficulty encourages the most growth at the fastest rate.Play On The Hardest Difficulty – MGTOW, No Fap and Semen Retention

At first, I actually regretted working on both fasting and No Fap at the same time, but now I’m quite grateful, as I appreciate food a lot more now, making the roars of my sex drive more quiet these days.

“Food just passes through you, in the same way sex passes through you. It’s just a biological drive. However, the difference is that food is more of a necessity than sex. Without food you may die. But you can survive just fine without an orgasm.” – 30 Days of No-Fap – Road to Self-Mastery

The more disciplined I become in my control of sex, the less I need to hide from it. But with fewer activities left to pass the time and compensate, the closer I get to the core of things, and the root of my dissatisfaction and desire.

Into The Depths of Desire

Throughout all these years, I never realized how deeply I retreated into porn to cover up or escape my emotions.

During this most recent No Fap streak, I believe I truly got to the root of my dissatisfaction with my life.

My earlier notes discussed this idea of a need for “relief“, which most likely refers to relief from the work and stress I’m going through trying to become debt-free and move out into my own apartment. However, my current income as well as the high rent prices in NYC make that very difficult.

So, to escape this, I obviously need to put in more hours at my day job, and invest in a side business such as this blog, for additional income and mobility. But with the amount of money that has to be saved and paid toward my debts, I can’t help but feel like I’m just spinning my wheels. I can only chase the carrot for so long without any reinforcement to keep going.

That’s why I’m willing to call myself an incel right now, because I do not have the time nor mental wherewithal to date, nor the money (if I’m being responsible) for an “express date” (escort).

So, essentially, I needed to come up with some scheme that would offer some incentive and satisfaction in the interim to keep the engine running at high efficiency until I get to my goal.

But to make matters worse, I was also experimenting with alternate day all-day dry fasting, which means I would have one day of regular feeding and the next day completely without food or water.

“Is There More To Life Than Just Food and Sex?”

Yes, there is.

As I laid there resting from my work, hungry, thirsty, and horny, I experienced real lethargy knowing I would not see any relief to any of my biological urges at this time, and that I had to power through my work for no other reason than it being the most logical thing to do.

I had finally reached the final form of all my training: I became a stoic machine that does only what is necessary. But without any sensory pleasures, life had become so bleak, even my greatest dissatisfaction from not being alone began to fade in the background.

I realized I needed a distraction if I aimed to continue with any more work. If I am a machine, then my battery must be passion, and I did not have enough passion towards my job or my main objective to power through this depleted and deprived state. The little bit of effort I already put in was enough.

If I knew there was a light at the end of the tunnel, I’d keep running through the darkness, but my work breaks were just time to rest my mind until getting back into more work. I had nothing to look forward to, and it made work even harder to get through.


I actually already answered in the article what it was exactly that was more in life than food and sex. It was Spirituality, Philosophy, Science, and Art.

I particularly relied on Art to get me through these food-and-sexless times, especially video games, and it’s actually quite incredible how heavily invested I can become in the hobby.

I almost teared up actually, when I was hit with nostalgia for Pokemon. After struggling for so long with porn addiction, I was so happy to know that I could still be enthralled by wholesome things like video-games and rediscovering my childhood.

I’ve been playing more video-games lately, which is why I published two stories related to Fallout 4 recently. I would power through my work harder than ever just to have enough spare time to play.

Will I Remain In Monk Mode?

In one of my more profound early writings, Finding The Wall: Plateaued Productivity and Leaving Monk Mode, I meditated on productivity and what limits I would have to hit in order to consider leaving the state.

This experiment has enlightened me that to perform work I must have compensation and resources. Genuine work like creating art asks for very little in return, but my menial day job requires a lot of hand-holding. The monetary compensation is very low, the tasks are monotonous, but it offers me at-home comfort, so I’ve settled with it.

The paradox of desperation is that it motivates me to take action, but also adds stress that decreases my satisfaction.

My desperation to move out has been great, but not enough to consider sacrificing with more student loan debt or a normie job on the outside world. Therefore, I’m only pushing myself as hard as the proportion of satisfaction I’m getting in return.

Even if the horse chases harder initially to get the entire carrot, it will run out of incentive and energy eventually unless you feed it small pieces of carrot along the way.

That said, I have stripped my dopamine system down to its core so that just the pleasant thought of eating one of my simple meals with an episode of anime is enough to get me out of bed and straight to work in the morning. I can forget about sex completely if I can sublimate it with creative expression, and I’ve gamified my accounting to give every day of work more impact.

But maybe, at the back of my mind, I know things are only going this well because at the end of it all, I still desire the whole carrot. I know my gut will be healed one day and I can safely eat sugar again. All my debts will be paid off and I’ll have my own space. I’ll have more money and free time to date.

So, if I start running any faster, or my goal seems to be getting closer, it’s only because I’ve gotten hornier, and hungrier.

However, there is a notable portion of my desire dedicated to the fact that more time, space, and money will massively benefit my creative efforts. I could record so much more audio for my videos with an empty house, and could afford commissioning art work for my fictional works. But for now, the acquisition of sensory pleasures, along with our need to avoid pain, must be the basic formula for all human achievement.

But beware, my friends. If we dive any deeper than this, I think we will approach the surface of the soul.

Play On The Hardest Difficulty – MGTOW, No Fap and Semen Retention

A tactic I use to get the most fun out of video games these days is to simply play the game on its hardest difficulty.

It’s the fastest way to getting good at the game, and only requires one play through, as opposed to going through the normal difficulty first just to learn the ropes.

This also reflects the two ways that men become MGTOW. Many played the game on Easy Mode and followed the Blue Pill strategy guide only to get a “Game Over” screen after a divorce or some other betrayal by their former lover. Now they have to start a New Game, but potentially with over half of their finances cut, along with children to support (and you know how much we hate escort missions!). Is that the type of game you want to play?

The other way to join MGTOW is to instead front load all the difficulty at the beginning by crushing all of the hopes and dreams you initially had for your future through reasoning that the safest and most optimal outcome for your life requires you to alter or avoid relationships with women and the prospects of parenthood.

But no matter the method for getting through the Red Pill to MGTOW, somewhere along the way, it’s going to hurt.

“The sole and supreme use of suffering is to purify, to burn out all that is useless and impure. Suffering ceases for him who is pure.” – James Allen, As A Man Thinketh

Life on Hard Mode

Ronin Man, one of my favorite MGTOWs, recently published a video critiquing the practice of No-Fap, and he asked a very hard hitting question on whether guys on no fap or other retaining practices appear “peaceful.” I responded:

“It’s not about peace. It’s about self-knowledge, self-sufficiency, and self-mastery.”

It’s such a great question because the context is absolutely true. I will admit to you that I am not at all peaceful. But then again, has any of the work since taking the Red Pill been peaceful? It is an incredibly difficult task to tear down your former beliefs and personality to rebuild yourself entirely from a new core.

The goal was never peace. It’s why we took the Red Pill to begin with. We didn’t want the blissfully ignorant dream that ends in waking to a nightmare. No, we wanted the cold hard truth.

The Game That I’m Playing

One of my core hypotheses is that we function as Organic Intelligence Programs, referring to the plasticity of our brains and personalities, suggesting that with enough tinkering, we can be reprogrammed.

Of course, the body itself has its own vast intelligence. It’s our HP bar with natural strength, agility, constitution, etc. But for the majority of humans, the body has been running the entire game.

For instance, let’s take its desire for genetic reproduction, and the institutions of love, marriage, family, and even religion, that our intelligence programs have created to protect that imperative. You take the Red Pill when you deprogram yourself from this basic operating system.

Since a few months ago, I have been asking myself “Is There More To Life Than Just Food and Sex?”, and so the exact parameters of this game that I’m playing has been to closely control and/or monitor my behavior with my No Fap/Semen Retention practice as well as my Keto/Fasting Diet.

It’s not like I was ever an over consumer on any of the things I’m currently fasting from either. I just need to satisfy this incessant curiosity to know if there truly is something greater on the other side.

We play games to be challenged, and I’ve organized my life so far to do exactly this. I honestly would not recommend someone focusing on taming both their food and sex drives at once like I am, but like I said, the hardest difficulty encourages the most growth at the fastest rate.

Changing Class Systems

Changing my Character class is another fun thing to do to extend the play time of a game for a second run, where I would create a new character with a completely different play style. For example, the first play could have been a very vanilla, goody-two-shoes soldier archetype, but I might choose a stealthy, squirmy ranger/scoundrel for the second play through.

TFM also had a great rant on No Fap recently as well, specifically highlighting his frustration with the practice and the common occurrence of wet dreams at the end of each month. This is by far the most common wall No Fap practitioners hit during their practice.

Ironically, it disproves one of Ronin Man’s points against No Fap, that the practice is “shutting down the pipes”, which is clearly untrue if they force themselves open every now and then.

But going back to hitting the wall of wet dreams (yikes), it truly is the point in which all pivots are made on No Fap. First off, there is disagreement on whether experiencing one counts against your streak or not. This is where men decide to either continue their training at the school of Semen Retention, or to remain as just a strictly Non-PMO organization (No Porn Masturbation Orgasm).

The decision is usually guided by whether or not the practitioner is more invested in either the biological or psychological effects on No Fap. I was personally more uncomfortable with wet dreams and wanted to figure out how to stop them, and that’s what made me pursue semen retention.

However, other men suffer from a psychological drain from watching porn, and are more interested in developing healthier sex habits. The stages of which these men will set up camp outside the wall ranges from something like masturbating for a maximum of once per week only using their imagination, to no masturbation at all with release only allowed with a partner.

“Continue? Insert Coin.”

TFM couldn’t get over the wall, and so he found Celestina, his sex doll waifu, and is currently living happily ever after until her next upgrade.

But I’m not without my faults. I’ve written about my recent PMO relapse (Losing My Compass – Relapse, Desire, and Dissatisfaction on No Fap), and have also begun questioning if long-term practice is right for me.

Since then I decided to play on a harder difficulty, and this time completely cut out indulging in any pornographic or sexually stimulating content as well. Yeah, that even includes avoiding a lot of racy click-bait as well. However, I only made it to 28 days on that avenue, and contemplated on admitting I got a “Game Over” once again.

But the game wasn’t over. Not even close.

This whole time, running in the background, my semen retention streak counter has reached 45 days! I made it over the wall!

It was like I was trying to fill up my special move bar and got upset that I missed the opportunity for a flashy finish. I wanted to reset the entire game just because I ranked up an ability in a skill tree path that’s a bit outside of my class archetype.

Role Playing

Role Playing is another tool I use to spice things up if I’m no longer interested in a standard play through.

In Monster Hunter, I made a female character who is only allowed to use light weapons. In Fallout 4, I didn’t pick up any loot when I first started until it made narrative sense to start collecting junk and eating meat from the irradiated animals.

I was doing the same with No-Fap. I can’t say my 12 years of watching porn hasn’t altered my sexual interests. Unfortunately, my belief in the brain’s plasticity has backfired on me. I believe I’ve been reprogrammed towards a certain sexual interest and want to see if there’s a possibility to return to original factory settings.

Man, that’s one hell of a side quest. And this is exactly why I say I give out “Red Pills that are out of this world.” I’m willing to believe and experiment on very esoteric practices.

I shouldn’t be watching porn anyway, because it could end up interfering with my progress on semen retention. But I just want to clarify how I’m tweaking my difficulty settings on No Fap.

I’m running two simultaneous counters: one for semen retention, and another for No-PMO, where an infraction on any of the letters in the acronym results in a reset for that counter.

Min Maxing

Min Maxing is a character building strategy used in RPG games in which a player sacrifices (minimizes) growth in certain stat blocks in order to emphasize (maximizing) their strengths to produce overwhelming effects compared to more balanced characters.

In my opinion, this is MGTOW. We’ve ceased putting points into the marriage/dating/society skill trees, and are completely invested into other areas of personal development.

Sometimes, the game can feel like it’s really hard, but that’s because we still don’t understand how to play with this new class archetype. Some men want to dual class with having a girlfriend without marrying, or go purple pill. Others go full monk, or sub-class with pump and dump, etc.

When we experience hardships during our transformation into the MGTOW lifestyle, we must consider what our characters will look like at max level. The Blue Piller chose the easy path with the standard ending, only if he can somehow avoid the final boss (divorce rape). But going MGTOW is like getting the DLC expansion pack; new maps, skills, and alternate endings.

But those first few levels on MGTOW mode are brutal. Absolutely brutal. For a while it felt like you were just spinning your wheels, replaying the same level over and over again (red pill rage) while the Blue Pill men were leveling up.

But the true sweetness that is earned from a play through on these sorts of games on the highest difficulty is not just the satisfaction in taking the road less traveled, but taking the challenging task so difficult that it forces you to improve to levels beyond what was previously foreseeable.

Effectively, the game itself begins to disappear, because victory for any man who goes his own way is ultimate and imminent. You begin to realize the true battle was always between you and your former self, and any of your perceived limitations.

This is what playing on Hard Mode is, and this is what it takes to become a Champion.

Losing My Compass – Relapse, Desire and Dissatisfaction on No Fap

My No-Fap High Scores List

1st – 163 Days

2nd – 129 Days

3rd – 101 (latest)

The first draft of this story was difficult to write. After a relapse, I had no real sense or conclusion on the matter.

Moments after the relapse happened, I remember saying to myself “I don’t even know who you are anymore.”, which is a very profound statement considering I started this practice in the pursuit of self-knowledge.

“I think there is very little to be learned about yourself in the pursuit of sex. After all it is just a sensual pleasure.” – 30 Days of No-Fap: Road to Self -Mastery

I suppose it would be more meaningful now to flip this statement: What am I learning in the pursuit of non-sex?

Sex Is Always Going To Be There

An old strategy of mine was to deliberately feed into my urges with the intent that I could increase the intensity of my motivation for other habits if I also increased my sexual urges and then focused that energy to those other habits. A specific and frequent example for this was watching porn before working out.

This is quite the crude form of sex transmutation. It would work some of the time, but generally the risks aren’t worth it, and in the end it took more time to complete the desired action anyway because of the distracting sexual build up that had to be done beforehand.

The Power of Sex

I don’t want to remove my sex drive. According to Freud’s theory of sublimation, my sexual dissatisfaction could be the source for my strong drive for achievement as a means for compensation.

“My argument is not to abandon sex forever, but to simply curb it, to fast from it, only to recognize it has no true dominion over you.”Road to Self-Mastery

The context behind that statement was derived from observing the habits of sex-controlled men, with most of their paths leading to danger; #MeToo, financial divorce rape, and even physical harm for the single men frequenting red light districts.

Well, considering all that, masturbation and sex dolls actually seem like pretty great options.

But here’s my problem: I’ve taken the Red Pill.

I’ve learned about the health benefits of semen retention and Non-ejaculatory methods for sex, and I simply can not settle for these cheaper forms of pleasure anymore. I can not go back to the way I was before.

Losing My Compass

Yes, I know; real big talk from someone who relapsed anyway.

But 129 days is still nothing to scoff at. There are men out there that fap several times a day for years on end.

But what can easily happen with longer streaks like mine is a drop in standards and a loss for the fundamentals responsible for success in the first place.

I can tell you now, in the days leading up to my relapse, I had completely forgotten about Karezza. An act like that takes time, practice, and a committed partner; three things I don’t have the mental framework for in my current monk-mode environment.

And so, my reasons for doing No-Fap slowly got further and further away.

Reorientation

“A Saiyan gets stronger after every battle.” – Prince Vegeta

This relapse doesn’t have to be taken as a loss; none of them should be, ever. Do the logical thing: detach from the shame and disappointment and learn from the experience.

#1 Don’t Feed The Beast

As stated earlier, my sex drive is already powerful enough on it’s own; it doesn’t need any extra help. Engaging with it will only allow it to overcome my current focus, and I can’t afford that sort of distraction.

(Like Saruman told the Orcs in The Fellowship of The Ring: “We have work to do!”)

#2 Delayed Gratification

This has always been an issue since the start. Sex is too powerful, and is very difficult to delay through other means to only later intend to satisfy its end.

Obviously I want to have a moderate and responsible sex life, but I also don’t want to be in-between. If I’m going to do it, just go and do it. No more edging and teasing.

Every single part of my life deserves 100% of my attention and effort when it’s the right time for me to focus on it. So if I’ve decided I’m not going to have sex right now, then it’s not worth thinking about at all for the moment.

#3 Tracking Progress

As all this drama is going on with No-Fap, meanwhile, I’ve just made nine months of my Keto/Candida diet. The awesome thing about Health & Fitness is that the gains are very observable, and while the Candida isn’t completely gone yet, I’ve at least reached my weight loss goals and other health benefits.

As someone who was already actively decreasing my masturbation frequency before I even knew about No-Fap, these “superpowers” more chronic abusers experience after they begin this practice aren’t so apparent to me.

And even if I go even further with strict Semen Retention, Debonair D recommends a six-month minimum for complete realization. That’s a really long time for a very esoteric practice with no guarantees for what could be a possible placebo effect. And so, this leads me to my last point, wrapping it all up.

#4 An Everyday Perspective

Honestly, counting my streaks, and especially wanting to reach a certain month/day milestone is making a mountain out of this ordeal. It gets even worse when you have hit high streaks before, because the low-number days you need to build up again don’t have the same impact.

This entire recent streak, I was just looking forward to beating my high score, and everyday not having it wasn’t necessarily making me more likely to achieve it, as it also made me more frustrated that I’m not where I want to be.

Too much projecting into the future made me forget what No-Fap’s purpose is supposed to be for me as an everyday experience.

I want self-mastery. I never want to be in a situation where I am compelled by some external necessity, and I’ve identified sex to be in that category at the moment.

If I just metaphorically wave to my sex drive from across the street, letting it pass me by, I can save myself so much time and money to focus on more productive and beneficial life practices. I know about my sex drive already, but I don’t really know enough about my creative drives, my relationship with food, my full opinion on money, leisure, and luxury.

Once again, sex isn’t something that has to be abandoned forever. I don’t have to be a celibate monk, and even so there are responsible and spiritual ways to incorporate it into my life, like with Karezza, for example.

But what’s clear as day to me right now is that I made some interesting choices with my life prior to MGTOW, and I think the most responsible thing to do right now is to hard freeze on everything unnecessary (deep Monk Mode) and focus on clearing up the debts and damage from the past, and forge new roads and foundations for a more successful future.

I shouldn’t be afraid of this either; I really can’t tell if my Monk Mode will last forever and I become the next Nikola Tesla (I’ve voiced this concern in FINDING THE WALL: PLATEAUED PRODUCTIVITY AND LEAVING MONK MODE).

As a separate analogy, imagine you are advised not to move during meditation. But what if a particular discomfort makes it extremely difficult to quiet the mind as the entirety of your mind becomes focused on ignoring that one uncomfortable feeling?

129/101 days is freaking good, but if No-Fap starts to become a chore in itself and ends up having the reverse effect of distracting me from my main objectives, I have to consider the possibility that I won’t become a No-Fap Guru, and I’m simply just a jack-of-all-trades, and call it quits when the urges do get that strong.

I’m a highly creative individual, and I know from my past experiences that indulging in PMO starts out tame at first, but overtime it will certainly escalate.

But if I could start doing No-Fap Hardmode properly this time, and reset my baseline enough so that I can actually derive some satisfaction from PMO every four months or so, that actually seems like a pretty good deal!

So, I suppose the next challenge and interesting question is: How strong is my sex drive? Will ignoring it on No-Fap actually end up backfiring?

We’ll see. More content on the way.

5 Tips for Starting and Surviving No Fap [100 Days Update]

I realized my previous No-Fap updates might have been too advanced, so I have reflected on these past 100 days to offer some useful advice for the No-Fap newbies out there, and a new perspective for current practitioners to reach new heights.

Tip #1: The Zenkai Boost

I’ve used this analogy before, but a lot of the improvements observed during No-Fap can be likened to the same process Saiyans undergo in Dragon Ball Z, in which their power level dramatically increases after they recover from near-fatal injuries.

I specifically identified the “Zenkai Boost” effect after noticing the gaps in frequency for my nocturnal emissions, as the longer I practiced No-Fap, the further away each one occurred from the last.

In the event that you do experience failure on your No-Fap journey, keep in mind that every failure is still valuable experience.

If you are constantly evaluating your progress along the way, you can identify what your triggers are so that you can better avoid them in the next round.

No-Fap is also not a completely mental exercise; you are also dragging along a very incessant body that needs realignment and repair.

#2: Count the Consecutive AND Cumulative Days on No-Fap

Acknowledging our streak counts is by far the most easily recognized habit within the No-Fap community. However, the way it is commonly approached can be harmful to the new practitioner.

Great comment by this guy on a very comedic NoFapper vs. Coomer video.

Those that reject No-Fap are always on day 0, so even though you may fail repeatedly to create a decent streak, you are at least making an effort, and every single moment of those efforts should be recognized.

Start counting your days from the day you decided you wanted to change, because there are so many out there that actively reject to change this habit.

It’s unfair to say that my “Day 0” after hitting 163 days (my high score) is the same “Day 0” as another man who has never made it past 3 days.

All of your experience matters. Count it all.

If you do it this way, even if you fail, you are still on the path and always growing.

#3: Slowly Deprogram (Don’t Go Cold Turkey)

It has never been enjoyable, nor strategically successful, to sternly stamp my foot down and refuse to repeat a certain behavior after previously over-indulging in it.

This especially happens with food, as I used to respond to relapses in my dieting habits with a full day of fasting (sometimes even dry fasting) either to punish myself or hard reset my neural pathways.

It’s absolutely miserable, as it doesn’t make me feel accomplished while doing it, and failing to abide by my own punishment just confirms that I have no control of myself.

Yes, as No-Fappers, we are addicted to porn, but I believe it’s wiser to slowly limit my consumption of it over a certain period of time, and eventually get bored of it (since there’s no orgasm release), as opposed to constantly fighting and struggling against my curiosity.

In fact, new No-Fappers should probably shoot for building up on smaller streaks in the beginning rather than trying to hit a 30 day or 90 day reboot on their first try.

It seems to be the healthiest way to achieve lasting results. With porn, I think it’s better to become desensitized, through boredom and sound logic, rather than overly sensitive, through strict avoidance and repression.

#4 The Body Needs Discipline (This Stops Wet Dreams)

Isaac from Castlevania, meditating before his self-flagellation exercise

“The Body is sick. It must be purged. It must be focused. This is Holy work.” – Isaac from Castlevania (Netflix)

There are two schools of practice in No-Fap, and the divergence starts around the argument of whether or not a nocturnal emission affects your streak. Believing that it does is a likely path towards practicing full-on semen retention, but either way, a wet dream is not a fun event to go through.

Once again, there are two theories behind why it occurs in the first place.

The first theory is that your body does not yet have the mechanics for retention, neither the muscles nor the neuronal pathways, as it is adjusted to frequent ejaculation, so your body will attempt to expel semen when it is most vulnerable.

I remember a particular night after working out, I decided to skip my cold shower and go for a hot one before bed. I went to bed with a very strong fear that I was going to release at night during a dream, and not more than four hours later, I was disturbed by wildly sexual dreams, confirming my suspicion.

However, over time, my control of these dreams increased. At first, the ejaculations were almost instant, with little or no penetration at all. But as time went on, I was able to force them back, and eventually, not ejaculate at all during dream sex.

Which brings me to the second theory: A weak pelvic floor.

Debonair D has claimed that he has never experienced a wet dream, and he proposes that his natural defense is derived from his early adoption of frequent and heavy exercise, especially lower body workouts which relieve him of tension and pressure in the pelvic area, whereas other men who don’t exercise build up and unfortunately release this tension at night.

I also like to consider Yin/Yang and thermodynamic entropy as well. Having wet dreams is a symptom of the body having too much external heat (Yang energy). This is why I believe I released after my hot shower.

Therefore, incorporating more Yin practices (like meditation and cold showers) will invert the body’s heat and retain it. Making yourself colder will force the body to absorb the heat around you, as entropy is always attempting to achieve temperature uniformity.

#5 Constantly Ask Questions

“A question opens the mind. A statement closes the mind” – Robert Kiyosaki

The last piece of advice is a call back to an earlier article of mine, Two Questions To End Old Habits And Re-Organize Your Life

Structuring your life around bold statements does not seem to be a sustainable practice, and is probably why most New Year’s Resolutions fail after the first two months, or even sooner.

Although I have committed myself to one year of No-Fap and Keto diet training, I have not stated “I will do this for one year”, I have simply asked myself “What will happen if I do this for one year?”

We don’t know the future and we aren’t very good at even predicting our own behavior, so it’s important to keep our mindsets open and constantly gauge ourselves during our search for self-knowledge and wisdom.

If the urge to watch porn again comes up, you don’t have to be so adamantly against it, just simply ask a few questions.

What is the end goal of watching porn? It will most likely result in masturbation.

How does watching porn develop my character? I think it just makes me a person that watches porn.

What will I learn about myself? This one hurts. I don’t know! Is what I watch what I’m actually attracted to, or am I being programmed or manipulated into certain categories? However, I don’t think I’ll find the answer by watching more porn.

By asking questions, you make a graceful arrival to the logical conclusion, as opposed to the constant resistance of a definitive statement. It’s also a more mindful practice that introduces objective introspection rather than the ego investment that occurs through making declarations and promises to uphold or abstain from certain behaviors.

Don’t ever be afraid to not have an answer for your questions either. There is nothing wrong with an unsolved or open-ended question, as I believe just having the ability to ask it is enough proof of progress and demonstration of logic, and accepting the empty space is more likely to allow you to live in the present moment than believing every action needs to be explained.

“The only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing.” – Socrates

My Personal Milestone Goals (Being A New Content Creator Feels Like The Chunin Exams)

In the Naruto franchise, which I’m referencing for this article, there are three ranks of ninja classes.

The lowest rank is Genin, whom function as school students for the majority of their time. However, they are able to be promoted through the Chunin Exams.

Using this comparison, consumers and commentators of content are the Genin. They enjoy studying the content and will occasionally go on “missions”, which would be more elaborate commenting, or gain the supervision of a Jonin (high rank ninja), which would be akin to being a donor for exclusive content from well established creators.

The Chunins, on the other hand, are people like myself, who now feel they are ready to graduate from the academy and put their skills to the test.

It’s a great feeling, but also a daring one, as I can no longer comment from a distance if I disagree with a specific content creator. I actually have to provide the proof with my own work.

On the other hand, this has given me a lot of confidence, as any dislikes or dissenting comments I receive won’t be worth much to me if the person who made them does not also produce content themselves.

There is a great appreciation for those that support my content, but there can only be a mutual respect for detractors if they are putting in as much effort as I am.

I have and will continue to also challenge higher profile content producers, but very sparingly, as I am not interested in drama or farming their audience for clicks.

Another cool thing about the Chunin exams are that the Genin are not promoted by the majority rule of the village (so, I can’t say something cheesy like, “I’ll finally make it when I hit 10,000+ subscribers!”), but are instead promoted by other Ninja and the Feudal Lord observing the exam.

Although I’m not completely dependent on validation from other content creators, I do regularly compare my skills against theirs, and derive inspiration and new skills from studying their methods. Thus, I have came up with some important benchmarks for myself that I would consider a promotion through my content.

A Seat At The Table With…Happy Humble Hermit

HHH is one of my favorite MGTOW content creators, and it would be a personal reward for me to have a sit-down talk with the man.

One of his most popular videos on Miyamoto Musashi was actually the inspiration for my Way of The Sword: Part I story, as it was the first time I learned about the swordsman’s life.

He very often encourages other MGTOW to get involved and produce their own content, and I have followed a lot of his advice in his “How To” start up guide video.

He is studying in college to become a teacher, and I’ve even taken inspiration from him on that as well. I’m at a crossroads in my career, as I have an opportunity to score a decent job and settle with my Associate’s degree, or continue to further my education to a Bachelor’s, in which my ideal job afterward would also be as a teacher.

The summers and holiday breaks off is a huge incentive, and will provide me great opportunities to continue to work on my side jobs, (like this site!).

Lastly, another of my MGTOW idols, Itachi MGTOW, whom I also wrote about previously, looked up to Hermit as well, and has been featured on his channel a few times. A sit down with Hermit would let me know I am approaching the same level of prestige as my former mentor.

808-1,000 days of No-Fap

808 is the number no-fap guru Gold Jacket Luke ended his highest streak on, and after reaching that number I will commemorate any no-fapper’s success in reaching that number as Happy Gold Jacket Luke day!

Hopefully he doesn’t take it as a personal dig, but 808 is a dope number, anyway, honestly.

Karezza + 1 year Semen Retention

Semen Retention is the next logical level to ascend to after achieving some foundation in No Fap.

Watching content from Debonair D and Health Then Opulence is actually what inspired this article, as I had two very clear elder content creators in which the distance between my experience and theirs made it very difficult for me to detract or advise them, since they’ve accumulated so much experience in this field and I’m barely out of ground zero.

One angle I have over them, however, is Karezza, and I must credit Gold Jacket Luke for enlightening me to this knowledge. It appears to be less widely known than other practices on retention, especially since the term wasn’t coined until the 1800’s.

From watching their content, it seems that both men still demonstrate a very clear divide between them and their sexual partners. They do not see the bias in allowing the female to orgasm, while they focus on retaining.

Through Karezza, both partners do not orgasm and eliminate the divide and bond very deeply together. However, I have not practiced it myself, so even though I feel they could benefit greatly from it, I have no platform to preach from.

Keto Diet + Curing Candida

It’s been 55 straight days of my Keto, Anti-Candida diet (with plenty of those days being One-Meal-A-Day fasting).

Finally achieving the hormonal balance and purging, rebuilding, and fortifying of my gut would be a huge accomplishment and also provide me a wealth of data and experience to share and introduce others into the wider health community.

I hope I can achieve some results in six months, but I am aiming for a full year to perfect this diet so I would be confident enough to lightly guide others in a helpful direction.

Monk Mode

Lastly, if I could optimize my Monk Mode focus to get myself out of this apartment and into a single in New York City (with these high rents, this is not an easy task), I would actually have the privacy I need to become more prolific with recording and uploading videos.

The videos will almost always follow my written content anyway, but with a new mic and some private space, I could catch up on a lot of my articles and provide my viewers with more content.

I would even have the ability to host live streams! So that will be a whole new level of production for me, and most certainly signifies my promotion.


That’s all for now. Just a fun little article for myself. I hope you enjoyed it too.

What would you make you feel accomplished and warrant a promotion to the next content creator level? Let me know.
